Snow White by Greg Banks

This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? No. Wild? Yes! To start with, it’s a two-person play. Do the math. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! And it’s funny. Really, really funny. So expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale full of hilarious hijinks and meaningful lessons.

Señora Tortuga by Roxanne Schroeder-Arce

A celebration of the confluence of two cultures and languages, this English/Spanish bilingual play uses the wisdom tales of Latin American cultures to give hope to a family faced with too much reality. Young Pedro and his family make their home in a barn on the Mexican border. Pedro complains of having nothing and brings his mother many headaches. On one occasion, she invites a hungry woman to share the family dinner. But this Señora returns time and again to eat and tell fantastical stories of the enchanted serpent and Cucuy of Latin American legend, filling Pedro’s nights with heroic, yet frightening dreams. Surprisingly, Pedro is learning from these wisdom tales, but his mother is suspicious of the Señora until it is revealed that Señora Tortuga holds the thread that ties their past dreams to their future.

FAQs

Can I book a show for something other than a school?

Our shows also make great birthday parties or entertainment at special family events. Call for more details about tour availability.

Do we need to have a stage?

At your facility, all our shows require is an empty space. We will bring all of our own equipment and can perform in a large variety of venues, from classrooms to stages, cafeterias to gymnasiums. All we need is a standard electrical outlet to plug into and we are all set!
